I Love To Tell The Story – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Another day of telling the old, old story.
It’s the story we need to hear, over and over again, whatever the season and circumstance of life.
I Love To Tell The Story, original lyrics by Kate Hankey with the refrain and tune by William G. Fischer.
This version by Alan Jackson features the first and third verses.

1.
I love to tell the story
of unseen things above,
of Jesus and his glory,
of Jesus and his love.
I love to tell the story,
because I know ’tis true;
it satisfies my longings
as nothing else could do.
Refrain:
I love to tell the story;
’twill be my theme in glory
to tell the old, old story
of Jesus and his love.
2
I love to tell the story;
’tis pleasant to repeat
what seems, each time I tell it,
more wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story,
for some have never heard
the message of salvation
from God’s own holy Word.
Refrain
3
I love to tell the story,
for those who know it best
seem hungering and thirsting
to hear it, like the rest.
And when, in scenes of glory,
I sing the new, new song,
’twill be the old, old story
that I have loved so long.
Refrain
